Alexandra in Grey

Hi everyone and hope you all ok..
Hoping that you wasn't affected by the high winds that we have had and the rain. A blogging friend went away in their caravan on Friday for a week and im just hoping that everything ok... I see this challenge over at Passion for Pro markers yesterday and its use Shades of Grey and thought I must make a card as that's just how I have been feeling since Saturday.

 Youngest Grandson Olli got took into hospital Saturday as he not been very well for a few weeks. They did lots of tests and couldn't find anything wrong but new he is ill so Monday they took some fluid from his spine and came back with something wrong so they grow the bug in the lad and have found out yesterday that his has Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) a form of Meningitis. He had all his jabs for that when he was a baby so they saying that he had immunisation failure. It may be that the injections he had could of bin a bad batch so my daughter has had all question asked, just hoping that his injection was just the only one and there not other babies bin injected with dodgy ones. They have been giving him fluids and antibiotics through a drip but yesterday his veins keep collapsing so they having a job to get a drip back into him. The last thing my daughter said last night is that they waiting for a new doctor to come round to have a go and get one in. I shall find out more later. I feel so helpless at the minute as I cant go and see them as im full of cold, cant even just see daughter in case I give it to her, said that id help out and look after Bailey (daughters other son) but cant but least there's lots of family helping out and now they no what's wrong with Olli he be better soon..
I no I shouldn't say it but roll on next year as 2013 has been one of those years with everything that has happened..Its been unlucky 13 

Now on to my card so now you no its just right...Have used digi image Alexandra from Crafts and Me store. The digi papers are called Spring Delights and Spring Surprise from Bearly-Mine Designs but I played about with the grey scale to have them print out a grey colour.

tonic punch, x cut circle, was cream card candi and used cool grey 3 to colour,
pro markers used cool grey 1 that decided to run out, cool grey 3 and 4 plus ice grey 5...they the only greys I have, think must get some more greys as they are handy 
Take Care
